Game Report

Highlights

Bernard's early goal was enough to secure a hard fought win for Everton over Watford. It was a closely contested game overall but the visitors failed to take their chances after falling behind and the Toffees held firm.

Detail

Everton took an early lead on the counter-attack. A superb long pass from Lucas Digne sent Bernard clear down the left and the Brazilian reversed a shot into the net.

Watford grew into the game after a slow start and began to dominate towards the end of the first half. Jose Holebas troubled the home defence with his deliveries into the box - one of which saw Craig Dawson head against the bar.

The visitors threatened on the break early in the second half. Gerard Deulofeu played in Troy Deeney with a fine pass but Pickford made a stunning save to deny the striker.

Deeney was typically a nuisance for the opposition defence with his physicality in the box on crosses. The Hornets captain helped set up a great chance for Roberto Pereyra but the Argentine headed over from close range.

Everton brought on new boy Moise Kean for the closing stages. The youngster injected life into their attack and went close to sealing the points but his low shot trickled just wide.

Summary

Everton got the early goal and remained solid defensively to claim another home win. Watford did have their opportunities but weren't clinical enough.
